The majority of insured motorists in Algona and Kossuth county arc expected to earn the Safe Driver Reward of 15 per cent of a year's liability premium, amounting to $3.00 or more on a standard limit policy, acording to a survey made by the National Bureau of Casualty and Surety Underwriters. Safe drivers of private passenger cars will get a reward of $3.00 on policies covering low-priced cars while 'or the policies on medium- priced type cars the reward Is $3.15 Since rates are the same as last year, the rewards will mean an actual 15 per cent reduction in ccst of insurance. If national averages hold in this territory, the survey pointed out 8S out of 100 insured motorists will make these savings. "For many years there has been a great need for a direct individual appeal to the motorist to drive safely and we believe that the Safe Driver Reward plan has that appeal." said William Leslie, general | manager of the National Bureau. "Our figures show that we can expect 88 per cent of the motorists Insured by our member companies to earn the Safe Driver Reward We also believe it will stimulate al' drivers to be more careful am drive safely, thereby reducing the number who have accidents. With fewer accidents there should be fewer losses. In this event Insurance rates can be reduced even more than they are now under the plan. and. most Important, the frightful annual toll of automobile accidents will be lessened." The Safe Driver Reward plan was introduced In this state by 32 stock company members of the National Bureau and all private passenger car policies newly written or renewed contain the provision that if there is no loss within A year's time, the holder receives a eturn of 15 percent of the prem- um. Safe drivers can have their reward either in cash or apply it ns a renewal, the Bureau has an- lounced. (AWARD DAY AT ARMSTRONG HELD Armstrong: The awards day pro- jn-am was held Thursday morning.
